i want to know because my brother brought one from school and I want to know if it can wreck your game and if you trade a Pokemon that you caught by A-R can it wreck the other game?

The funny thing is, I've never had anything bad happen to my game when I used to play around with my AR. It would freeze, yeah, but it doesn't wreck anything.

AR does not randomly cause Bad Eggs to appear. It would be the owner's fault for inputting the cheat wrong. Bad Eggs or ???? will appear in games if you set the Wild Pokémon Modifier to 0, an integer, or a number greater than 493. There's also an extremely slim chance of a Bad Egg appearing if you use the cheat to steal Trainer's Pokémon. Ironically enough, you can even find a cheat somewhere to FIX the Bad Egg.

And no, Action Replay cannot mess up your DS. Your DS simply reads code from the card it's given; it can't break from reading code, that just makes no sense.

Folk tales about these things are far and many, and 99% of "Action Replays are evil!" stories are fake, so do your research. One thing AR will do is break itself. The cheat card is very fragile, and to be honest, I wouldn't buy one only for it to break a couple days later, given the fairly steep price tag.

Well, using an AR is very very risky. Sometimes this can mess up your game or even worse , it can mess up your DS. Some people do get hacked Pokemon by trades and messed up there games a lot. If you want to use an AR, it's up to you, whether you mess up your game or not! (Hope This Helps!) :)

Well, yes it can.Also, by many peoples standards, it's not right to cheat.There are many things that can happen.One result(this one I'm not completely sure of) is obtaining somethign called a "Bad Egg".This can totally mess up your game.AR can cause your game to freeze.As i said before there are many.
